Are we ever safe? No

Cybercriminals are taking advantage of the current state of affairs. We are seeing a rise in spear-phishing attempts, malware embedded PDFs, Word documents, and ransomware – all targeting unprotected remote users.

Here’s a quick checklist to make sure the right cybersecurity measures are in place for remote users:

  • Do you have a secure VPN set up?

  • Do all your company-issued devices have next-gen AV/Endpoint protection?

  • Are employees (or you) using personal laptops/desktops, and do these devices have AV/Endpoint protection?

  • Email security – do you have the right email security solution in place to handle advanced spear-phishing and credential compromise attacks?

  • Do not click on attachments or links from someone you do not know, always hover your mouse over the senders’ name/domain.

Please let me know if I can help answer any questions regarding the security of your network and working remotely.
